Ink Blending Background for a Bold Sentiment

I love large sentiment stamps and this blended ink background provides the perfect setting for the bold “Peace on Earth” greeting from the Thinking, Thanks & Peace Stamp Set.

To create the background I used the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes and a Misty Moonlight Ink Pad. I simply inked up the blending brush by rubbing it across the ink pad and then applied the ink to basic white cardstock in a circular motion.

Heat Embossing the Sentiment

After I was satisfied with the background, I heat embossed the “Peace on Earth” sentiment with VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.

Stitched With Whimsy Dies

For a little more detail I used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies to add a fun border around both the sentiment layer and the blue mat layer.

The Stitched with Whimsy Dies don’t actually cut the cardstock, they simply pierce a whimsical border around a pre-cut piece of cardstock.

Instructions for Today’s Card (supply list at end of post)

  • Cut a 5″ x 3 3/4″ of Basic White card stock.
  • Use the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes and Misty Moonlight ink to blend color in a diagonal strip. Ink the blending brush by rubbing it across the ink pad and blend onto the card stock in a circular motion.
  • Stamp the “Peace on Earth” sentiment from the Thinking, Thanks & Peace stamp set with VersaMark Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Use the corresponding sized Stitched with Whimsy die to add the border to the sentiment piece.
  • Cut a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Misty Moonlight card stock and use the corresponding sized Stitched with Whimsy die to add the border.
  • Attach the Misty Moonlight cardstock to an A2 sized card base with Stampin’ Seal adhesive.
  • Attach the sentiment piece to the card with a piece of adhesive foam sheet.
  • Add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little bling.
